Game-Changing Safety Padding

Kelmatt’s Customised Solution for the AFL Sets the Standard

Let’s talk about something important – safety padding for sports. At Kelmatt Pty Ltd, we’re all for keeping athletes safe, and it’s an honour to be the trusted supplier for the AFL (Australian Football League) when it comes to top-notch safety padding for their goal posts. So what makes our safety padding stand out? Especially the customised solution we manufactured for the AFL stadiums.

With athlete safety, there’s a lot at stake. That’s why we’ve poured some serious know-how into designing safety padding that caters to a wide range of sports, including football, tennis, netball, basketball, gymnastics, greyhound and horse racing, rugby, and ice racing. Our goal is to ensure best possible safety for players in every sport we serve.

When it comes to the AFL, we’re proud to produce goal post padding for all senior AFL match venues across the country. It’s a responsibility we take seriously. Our goal post padding is extensively designed to meet AFL requirements, including unique goal-review camera housings. This custom feature protects the goal-review cameras without compromising player safety. We’re thrilled to supply a solution that enhances both the game and player well-being.

While the customisation was a winning feature, the quality of our materials also scored points. We use premium-grade open cell foam, which offers excellent impact absorption. It’s like having an extra layer of protection for the players. Plus, our safety padding is anti-microbial, keeping things clean and fresh on the field. The athletes deserve a safe and hygienic playing environment, and we’re committed to delivering it.

Our safety padding can be found on hundreds of AFL grounds across the country. From iconic venues like the MCG and Marvel Stadium to Optus Stadium, SCG, Gabba, Blundstone Arena, Adelaide Oval, and Metricon Stadium, our padding has become a trusted choice for player safety during AFL matches. It’s a testament to our commitment to quality and our ability to deliver exceptional products.

But it’s not just about the products, it’s about the relationships we build. We work closely with our clients to understand their unique needs. When it came to the AFL, we collaborated with the broadcasting team to ensure that every aspect of the safety padding is tailored exactly to their outcomes. Our team thrives on responding to new challenges to deliver exceptional results.

At Kelmatt, we’re not just about safety padding; we’re about making a positive impact. We’re proud to be an Australian-made company, and we’re enthusiastic about supporting local manufacturing.

So, the next time you’re watching a mash-up in the goal square, remember that Kelmatt’s safety padding is doing its thing to reduce player injury, and keep the goal-review cameras “on point”.
